Medical without patient summary

20 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello, has anyone been to medical without patient summary? I have received my interview email on thursday, got medical booked for 5th november and today called my gp about patient summary, they said it can take up to 4 weeks. I have pretty much 0 medical history in here so it shouldn’t take them that long, but still worry about them not letting me pass medical without it.

We had an issue getting the GP to help us as well. Do you have access to your online medical records through NHS?

4 weeks!? I called my GPs secretary and she printed it off there and then. I went to the surgery about an hour later to pick it up. Call your GPs secretary if you can. My medical is on the 7th Nov

It shouldn't take four weeks. They are either extremely lazy, have no idea what they're doing, or indeed both. If you are able to get down there, go to your GP surgery and just ask for a print out. It will take them about 10 seconds. You only need the basic print out, not your full medical history. Perhaps they have got themselves mixed up in thinking that.

I was really surprised by it as i told them i need  only summary, they gave me piece of paper to sign saying that i might need to pay for it depending how long is it and it might take 4 weeks. Called them today again, reminded that i don't need full medical history, reception told me that i need to call tomorrow to double check as lady from finances(???) isn't in today.  So going to call tomorrow and see. Registering with that gp was a big mistake, should have believed the reviews lol

I had to write a letter to get my patient summary and it took them a week to do it for me, and even then I had to write them a second letter to change it because it said I was taking medication when I wasn't.

It is a requirement from Knightsbridge, even in the email, Knightsbridge state "We will keep your medical on hold if you do not have it with you on the day of your appointment"

I have access to my records online and the patient summary they printed off was not something I could access online.

 But that really only works if you’ve been at one GP right? If you’ve been to multiple GPs/Hospitals, that information won’t be synchronized into one patient history.

I second this! We can never get ANYWHERE with my fiance's GP over the phone, they are beyond incompetent. The only time were able to get anything done was when we went down there in person. Just tell them you need a copy of your medical summary and vaccination record and it shouldn't take them but a few minutes to print it off.

I can't say for certain but I imagine it would, right? Don't they transfer medical histories etc over from surgery to surgery?

Just want to add my 2 cents to this.

 

From what I understand when you go into the GP and ask for a patient summary they will print off your medical records. I thought Knightbridge were asking for a short summary from your GP to support this also.

 

For example if you've had depression its my understanding that Knightsbridge want to see comment on this from your doctor with your doctor confirming 'After treatment for a period of xxx I do not believe xxx is a danger to himself or others'

 

That's just what I get from the information on here. Might be completely wrong.

So after calling them 3 days in a row they printed it out today. And it says "patient summary" It has all my details and literally all appointments i had since i registered with gp in 2013. it's just 2 pages as i had 2 blood tests and couple appointments in that time, with blood test results and description of what appointment were about. Is this something that someone has brought with them to medical? was it enough? it mentions active problems, patient plan, allergies, current medication and communication within 2 months,  with "no information recorded" under all of them.

Following.

 

my current GP said there’s nothing on my current summary except for a referral, but I have had other GPS in the past so I might try contacting their offices.
